Xiaomi Mi A1 now getting official Android Oreo update

Since early December, Xiaomi's been seeking individuals to participate in a beta of Android Oreo for the Mi A1. News broke later in the month that Oreo for the phone introduced fast-charging, but there was still no timeframe as to when it'd be available for all. However, as a treat for ringing in the new year, Xiaomi's announced that Oreo is officially rolling out to all Mi A1 units.

Xiaomi will push Oreo to the Mi A1 in batches, so if you don't have an OTA update quite yet, it should arrive on your handset within a couple days.

In addition to the previously mentioned fast charging, Oreo for the Mi A1 adds picture-in-picture, notification dots, Google's Autofill API, improved battery/performance, and everything else that we've come to love with Android's latest.

If you own a Xiaomi Mi A1, have you gotten the Oreo update yet?

  • I got it on 31st. They actually kept the promise to update the phone to Oreo before the end of the year lol
  • Not yet. I'm in Ghana
  • Got the update here in the UK, using an Indian model A1. A buggy Orea build but fingers crossed for continued regular updates to keep things running smoothly.
  • What bugs are you referring to?
  • I'm facing battery drain, buggy phone app, multiple contacts and photos from the camera are taking too long to save/appear in the gallery
  • I have two MiA1, mine upgraded Dec-31, my son own one identical, but with no update to 8.0 so far.
  • When we will get for note4?
  • If you're asking about redmi note 4 than you won't get oreo update anytime soon expect it to come to note 4 by August - September time frame or later
  • I got Android Oreo Update on My Mi A1 . After update my battery was draining very fast. I think Google have to fix this problem. But in Nougat Battery lasts amazingly more than One day...
